What happened to the pasta in this recipe? Do I cook it separately?
Can’t get the IP to come to pressure without burning. Not sure what I did wrong.
Sorry about that! It could be that the type of tomatoes or marinara that you're using is thicker than what I had tested with. Try thinning it out with a little water and see if that works.
How do you intend to bring the IP to pressure with no thin liquid. 1 lb of pasta would need 4 cups of thin liquid.
The liquid from the tomatoes is pretty thin, thin enough to work as the liquid for this recipe. Since it's different than the traditional method of cooking pasta, you do not need 4 full cups of liquid.
